Aboitiz Construction recently clinched a deal to undertake the site development works for the second phase of LIMA Estate’s industrial land expansion in Lipa-Malvar, Batangas.
The project aims to expand LIMA Estate’s industrial lot inventory through the construction of the Block 9-2 site.
Once completed, LIMA Estate’s 2nd phase of Block 9 expansion and transformation project will accommodate new businesses in the area and generate 22,000 job opportunities.
The project is set for completion in 2023, with Aboitiz Construction responsible for the site development. This includes site grading, slope protection and road construction activities. Also included in the scope are drainage, waterline, and sewer line works.
Around 150 manpower will be hired for this project.
“We are delighted to be working with our affiliate LIMA Land on this expansion project which will surely boost Batangas’ local economy. This bolsters our capabilities in engineering and design as well as in construction while complementing our commitment to contribute towards economic growth and help other businesses succeed,” said Levi Agoncillo, Aboitiz Construction’s Vice President for Business Development, Tender Planning, and Engineering and Design.
Aboitiz Construction has been a trusted partner of LIMA Land in building structures under light industries since 2018. In 2020, it successfully completed the construction of The Outlets at Lipa, a 9-hectare cluster type mixed-use commercial facility, which is considered the largest outdoor mall in Batangas. It consists of 10 units of single story structure, 12 units of two-storey structure, a multi-purpose field and mini parks.
“LIMA Estate has always been well-supported by the affiliates of the Aboitiz Group which ensure ease of doing business for our locators. We’ve had successful collaborations in several of our projects within LIMA and we are very happy to once again embark on this new expansion project with Aboitiz Construction, fully showcasing OneAboitiz at work,” said Clifford Academia, Vice President for Operations of LIMA Estate.
“ACI also offers their expertise in mechanical, electrical, and site development works to locators for construction of factories, warehouses, and commercial buildings, much like how our other affiliates LIMA Water and LIMA EnerZone provide complementary services.”
In addition, Aboitiz Construction was responsible for the design and construction of LIMA Exchange, a 2.6-hectare commercial development right across The Outlets at Lipa. It consists of four units of mixed-use commercial structure, a sports complex with offices and commercial units, and two transport terminals.
To support the ongoing expansion and growth of LIMA Estate, Aboitiz Construction recently completed the design and construction of a 69 kV overhead transmission line for LIMA Enerzone. This project will help improve power reliability for the said business zone as it welcomes new business locators.
Aboitiz InfraCapital’s LIMA Estate is a 794-hectare Philippine Economic Zone Authority–registered development with over 60,000 employees and considered to be one of the largest privately-owned industrial parks in the Philippines.
